Statement by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Angelino Alfano:

Statement by Minister of Foreign Affairs, Angelino Alfano: "The Italian position on Jerusalem is and remains anchored to the European one and to the international consensus reached within the UN.
A solution for Jerusalem as a future capital of two states must be sought between Israelis and Palestinians through negotiations, in the context of the peace process based on two states, taking into account the legitimate expectations of both.
Until this happens, Italy will continue to abide by the relevant UN resolutions and to maintain its embassy to the state of Israel in Tel Aviv.
We are worried about the repercussions that the announcement of the new American approach will have on the ground. We appeal to the sense of responsibility of all actors in Palestine and in the region to avoid accidents and violence from which no one would benefit.
For Italy, it is now, together with the EU partners - and in contact with regional and international actors - to assess the situation and reflect on possible European initiatives to contribute to a substantial re-launch of the peace process with the prospect of the to two States solution, which must be preserved as it remains the only one that is realistically possible ".
